There’s so many ways to re-use and recycle everything around us. Today I’ll be showing you how to make spring-inspired paper flower DIY napkin rings with cardboard core cylinders from aluminum foil rolls or ribbon rolls. These are perfect for tea parties, spring parties and Mother’s day brunches coming our way! I like using aluminum foil rolls or ribbon rolls as even though they’re smaller, they’re much sturdier than their paper towel and toilet paper counterparts. See how I made them pretty!
- Carboard Core Cylinder
- Core’dinations Pastels Cardstock
- Craft Knife or Box Cutter
- Darice Paper Birch Bark Garland
- Mod Podge Matte
- Tacky Glue or Paper Glaze
- Embellishments (optional):
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 4. Cut a section of birch paper, cutting the top and bottom wire portions as well. Check how wide you need the birch paper and cut the excess off, but leave about 2 cm on each side so we can fold it inside the roll.
Step 7. Time to embellish – there are a ton of options for this, but I chose to go with paper flowers that I cut with my Silhouette Portrait. You can also use real flowers, silk flowers, succulents or die-cut flowers. I’m sure all of those would turn out stunning as well.
It’s a good way to make one-of-a-kind home decor without breaking the bank and helping Mother Earth by recycling and repurposing as well.
I hope you loved these paper flower DIY napkin rings and that I’ve inspired you to create your own!
